A mother of three fell victim as thieves broke into her home and stole nearly everything of value.

She said neighbors report seeing three men parked out front.

The brazen robbery happened in the middle of the afternoon last week near Portland Avenue and Newcastle Road.

The family had just returned home from out of state when they walked inside their home and immediately noticed they were robbed.

“I didn’t know what to do, pretty much went through every emotion possible,” she said.

And to protect her three young girls, News 9 won’t reveal her identity.

“As a mother, their safety and well-being is my number one priority, and I don’t want them to be affected by this,” she said.

It all happened Wednesday afternoon.  

“Everything of value, was gone. TV’s, laptop, PS3, all my kids games, Wii, work tools, everything,” she said.

The back door was kicked wide open, and the kitchen window was busted in.

She thinks there had to have been more than one person who came inside her family's home and took nearly every electronic they owned.

“People think that they can come into anybody’s home and take whatever they want, and nobody is going to say anything because they’re too scared,” she said.

This isn't the first time this mother has been victimized. Last year, she found herself in the middle an armed robbery while working at the Family Dollar on NE 23 Street and Martin Luther King Avenue.

She's the clerk seen in surveillance video pleading for her life as a rifle is being point straight at her.

She say this setback though, is no comparison to that.  

“We’ll overcome it. It’s just an obstacle, but we’ll get over it,” she said. “Everybody in the neighborhood is watching now.”

Neighbors tell police there was a faded blue Tahoe parked in front of the home at the time of the break-in. A man was also seen leaving with a 55-inch flat screen TV.

Anyone with information about this robbery is asked to call the Oklahoma City police.
